Hi, if someone would be willing to take a crack at compiling Zoom Interpreter I think it would be neat on the Zaurus.  I know frotz is available, and it works really well but doesn't run V6 (graphical) games.  Also, Zoom looks like it has nice font rendering which may or may now work on the Zaurus.

I tried compiling on the Zaurus but kept running out of memory even with a swapfile setup.  If someone has a huge swap or cross-compiles, it looks like a pretty staight forward build.

Thanks,
Andrew

I'll give it a shot, but it will be with a 2.6 kernel. Is that OK, or should I not bother?

IF you can do it with the 2.6 kernel, that would be great.  I am using beta3 right now, but everytime something interesting gets compiled for 2.6 I think about trying it again.

Thanks,
Andrew

The deed is done...I got it compiled. No idea if it works, but I'll package it up and post it ASAP.

EDIT: Posting it in the new packages thread now...

Just an update, if I haven't compiled or responded to your request, feel free to repost it.

I'm also thinking of compiling Stargus if there is interest. Is there? Maybe the new BoS Wars release, too.

Capn,

As long as you are offering, no one has compiled this yet. Help.

I need the driver for my USB ethernet dongle. There has been some discussion here before so I am not the only one that has one and needs the driver. It is a Davicom Semiconductor Inc DM9601 based device. The driver is available for download at:

http://www.davicom.com.tw/eng/download/Dri...driver_9601.htm

I need it compiled for pdaXii13 5.2. Thanks for any assistance.
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=152638\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

I am now running pdaXii13 5.3. My ethernet adapter is worthless without the driver. Without it I have to keep dragging my laptop around. Don't mean to be a pest, but would appreciate if someone could compile this driver. If you search the forum, you will notice that there are a couple of threads on this chipset, so obviously I am not the only one that needs it. Thanks.

I'm sorry, but I don't have the required tools to compile it.   I tried earlier, but it needs the kernel sources, which I lack. I also don't know if pdaXii13 uses the same kernel as Beta 1, which is the 2.4 kernel I have available for compiling with. If Beta 1, or I could flash Beta 3 on my C750 and use that, uses the same kernel as pdaXii13 and somebody could give me or point me to the appropriate kernel source, I would be happy to try to compile it again.

pdaXii13 use the same kernel as beta1/beta3, however, on pdaXrom, the Cxx00 series use 2.4.20 kernel for both beta1 and beta3, whereas the Cxx0 series use 2.4.18 kernel in beta1 and there was an experimental beta3 with 2.4.20 kernel but it was removed....


try this one. its compiled for 2.4.20 kernel, but I had to use the 2.4.18 source to get it to compile, the 2.4.20 source failed to compile, weird...

I copied qemu-i386 from the Sharp 0.6.1 ipk to my /usr/bin/ dir and it seems to run in the console without errors shown in screencap.
I also downloaded opera 8.52 for Linux.
I downloaded the *.tgz version because I wasn't sure which Linux distro to choose on the dropdown list.
I downloaded the "oldest" version shown because I think the newer versions probably have more bloat and I just want to try and run this in pdaxii13.

But now I am stumped as to how to install opera.
Someone, (I think tovarish) mentioned that opera is a static package in post 152 on page 11
https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showt...ndpost&p=154325
I'm not sure what a "static package" means.

I looked inside the opera.tgz (opera-8.52-20060201.6-shared-qt.i386-en.tar.gz) with winrar.
It has 11 directories and a whole lot of files and I'm not sure if unarchiving this on my pdaxii13 setup won't bugger things up.
Does one need to install opera on a desktop Linux PC, then copy it to the Zaurus to get it to run with qemu?
Has anyone tried this?
I think opera could be a good alternative to firefox and dillo. Plus, if it does work, there are versions available up to 9.10

Can libwmf be compiled for pdaxrom?
This is a library that enables *.wmf files to be opened/imported into inkscape

here are the links and the file
The correct filename is libwmf-0.2.8.4.tar.gz
The forum replaced the dash with an underscore.

Very nice page with full description and download link to source
http://wvware.sourceforge.net/libwmf.html

Source file is here. (I also attached it here in this post)

Here it is. Not tested, built on 2.6, should work on Cxx0 and Cxx00.

EDIT: Reposted a stripped version

Wow! Thanks Capn_Fish
inkscape just opened a drawing that contains 7,899 objects and 305,472 points!
It took about 20 minutes to completely open.
I just had to take a screencap because I'll probably not open this particular file again.
I'm just testing the capabilities of inkscape on a Zaurus.
This would have never come close to opening without swap, my HDD light ran constantly for the full 20 minutes.
As soon as I took the screencap, inkscape shut down.
Notice in the pic, my CPU and memory bars are gone.
They were both maxed when they took a dump.
This library works as an import extension in inkscape.
The install used about 5-6 MB of space.
It includes a lot of documents that I'll move to my hard drive later.

You can probably strip it. I built and packaged it in about 3 minutes, so I didn't bother.

how does one strip an IPK, or should the source be stripped?
Sorry for the newb questions, I don't know anything about compiling and related stuff.

I am not sure if this(pysol) needs to be compiled but it does need to be packaged effectively to run on the zaurus. I wonder if the extra python code needed to run it could be put in a seperate package.
http://www.pysol.org/
I loved playing it when i ran debian on xqt and would like to enjoy in it pdaxrom in all its softvfp glory.
Also if it is possible the latest version of portable puzzles
(http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/puzzles/). There is a new game in it and aslo if possible gtk.c could be modified to run all the games in fullscreen(see function midend_size).
I ported the games to my pocketpc and modifying them to run full screen by default wasnt that difficult.
